According to Harish Johari, each of us takes birth in that cakra where we have our greatest unfulfilled desire. : Tantra Yoga : Chakras and Rebirth
(The fact that we are born implies that we are at one of the six cakrAs, not at the seventh, but we can get there.)
When a person of the hRdaya (dharma) cakra engages in activities of another cakra :
Suppose your unfulfilled desire is to do something then you are reborn as a reformer, saint, devotee, healer or a spiritual artist, ie in the 4th cakra.
You have great love and compassion for humanity and you want to reform it.
You see injustice everywhere and you work to ‘fix the system’.
I have one friend one who fights for the disabled and underprivileged, she is forever concerned with ‘righting wrongs’. She is a social activist and even though she has a lot of physical pain, she works very hard to help people get rights and opportunities available to the physically able and fortunate.
I have another friend a gynaecologist. She is forever trying to teach the families of baby girls to treat them well and respect them and her efforts and committment are relentless.
Some other friends fight very hard to preserve hindu dharma and the correct the distorted images of hindus in a christian-western dominated media in India.
If your concern is purity and impurity, you are at vi’suddha cakra. If your concern is dharma and adharma (justice and injustice) you are at hRdaya cakra.
If you fall back on thought and knowledge to address issues at all layers you are at vis’uddha cakra.
If you fall back on love and activity to address issues at all layers you are at hRdaya (hrudaya) cakra.
In your job, in your family and in your basic activities you are fair, generous, sharing and loving.
You truly believe that your efforts make a difference and that people are teachable and helpable.
In your mind ‘the right way’ is the one that benefits the whole world. For you the whole world is your family.
When people in the dharma cakra act to serve others they are endearing.
When they talk about injustice – they get on the nerves of the people in higher cakrAs., and also of the people in the lower cakrAs.
Their major complaint about other people is that they are uncaring and selfish and not doing enough for general good.
People in this cakra are often loved by others because of their generosity.
A vis’uddha person who is disturbed exhibits the behavious of a dharma cakra person
